CLEVELAND -- Ohio was the last stop on the road for the President whose two-day campaign trail came to an end Thursday night in Cleveland.
The visit was a historic one. This is the first time ever that a sitting President of the United States has made a stop to Burke Lakefront Airport. Supports stood in lines for several hours before the event to get prime seat and standing space.
An estimated 12,000 people were part of the warm Cleveland welcome. The President spoke about moving the nation, as well as the state of Ohio, forward.
He asked Greater Clevelanders for their vote, not for what he's done but for what he plans to do for the country. Obama responded to former Secretary of State Colin Powell's announced support for the Obama campaign by saying that he was "proud, humbled" by the endorsement.
